    Ferenginar - must be as it's always cloudy and damp here...
  1. Here are a couple of places to get charts: http://www.britastro.org/vss/ - All current BAA Variable Star Charts plus lots of other resources. Many are free but for some you have to be a member. https://www.aavso.org/apps/vsp/ - AAVSO Variable Star Chart Plotter. The main site also has lots of other resources. Also attached is an excel spreadsheet I use to record observations. I've left some data in so you can see how it works. Enter data in the blue areas and it will populate the rest. The area on the right is laid out in the same format as the BAA VSS submission spreadsheet so you can copy and paste observations straight into their spreadsheet (should you wish to join).

    Clear skies Ron. Not bad at all. Had plenty of beer left though!

  12. Betelguese close-up!

    Here's my closest photo of Betelguese yet! Of course, it's actually the sun through a really weird sky. But it makes you wonder if this is what B really looks like.

    Caught napping again...
  14. An interesting question to which there is currently no answer. People have theories, but, that's all they are, theories. We don't have the means or the knowledge to move any of those theories to a proof.

    Perseus and Andromeda The Summer Triangle. Ah, just like home - light pollution and cloud obliterating Aquila...
